First Snow!

November-1-2014-snow

Well, we did get our first snow, not much but it is cold! The snow started around midnight, so I guess it snowed on and off during the night. Temperature this morning on the mountain at 7:00 AM was 28 degrees and the wind is blowing about 25 mph. Thursday late afternoon I had spotted icicles along the trail so I decided this morning to hike down up there.

Here are the icicles, it’s hard to tell in the picture but they are about 2-3 feet long.

It’s 8:50 AM now and the road is starting to melt so looks like we can get out today if we need too!

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. That looks so cold! You still have a lot of green, and then to have snow, oh my! What is your elevation there?
    Our snow didn’t hang around, thankfully. It’s no warmer today than it was last night but the sun is shining. 🙂

    Stay warm!

    • It was cold this morning, it has now warmed to 45 degrees. All the trees still had leaves, orange, yellow and reds, the green you see is mostly pine trees. Our elevation is 3126, snow is all gone now and sun is shining but we still have the wind! Have a great weekend Lindy! 🙂

  2. Gorgeous photos, Michael. Love the icicles, especially. This, I believe, is the proverbial “shot across the bow.” It will be an unusually harsh winter. I know you and Deb are ready to enjoy it 😉 Best wishes, WG

  3. Brrrr. I’m cold here in Columbia too. We had a cold windy rain which turned to massive snowflakes for about five minutes. We all enjoyed the pretty flakes but I am still cold.

  4. Wow, those are some very long icicles! You’ve had snow and we’ve had very few changing and/or fallen leaves here. Thanks for sharing your snow. And that’s a lovely cutting board, by the way. Hugs, N ❤
